Windows 7: USB Midi Won't Work Anymore

USB Midi Won't Work Anymore

I'm having problems getting my Usb MIDI to work in my music software. It used to work, but one day it just magically stopped working. I was about to make a dumb mistake and buy a new $60 Usb MIDI cable, but then I checked in device manager and I noticed that Windows WAS recognizing the Usb MIDI cable. It even said "This device is working properly." The MIDI Input light on the cable blinks when I press the keyboard's(piano) keys when I first plug it in, then stops after a while. It's supposed to be plug-n-play. When I first got it, no driver download was needed. I plugged it in, and it worked. I was thinking it may need a driver update? Or maybe a new driver? Whatever it is, please help. What do I do? Things you need to know:

Computer: Windows 7
Music Software: Mixcraft Pro Studio 5
MIDI Controller: Casio Privia PX-120 88 Key Digital Piano

Device Manager:

USB Midi Manufacturer: (Generic USB Audio)
Device Status: This device is working properly.
Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 7/13/2009
Driver Version: 6.1.7600.16385
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

Please help! Thanks!It's frustrating because it used to work but now it doesn't! I greatly appreciate it!

If it does not have any valuable files on give it a format with SD Formatter.

Download is on the left. Then try it.

Firstly when you plug in the usb device does it show up in windows explorer?

If so download SD Formatter & install it (click on the exe file of the download). Open the program & direct to the usb causing trouble & start the program.

See if it now works.
